While Coachella and SXSW are very different festivals in many ways, it appears that the two events had at least one thing in common this year: a floral Dolce & Gabbana bustier top. "California Gurl" Katy Perry showed up for Day 1 of this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in an outfit that recalled the playfulness of her early career while staying true to her more mature current style. The singer looked quite retro with cat's eye sunglasses, a deep side part with Veronica Lake waves, and a D&G skirt with matching bustier.
We saw a very similar look in March when Selena Gomez (and Texas native--looks like these girls are repping their home state music festivals!) walked the red carpet during the SXSW premiere of her controversial film "Spring Breakers." Gomez also brought some vintage flair to her getup with the same deep side part and chocolate brown waves and matched her lips with her coral, high-waisted pencil skirt.
In all honesty, both of these girls rocked it. Perry's appearances lately have been a bit stale--somehow matronly AND boob-y at the same time--so we're glad to see the 28-year-old embracing a more youthful silhouette and having fun with her look again. But Gomez's polished yet sexy red carpet look was the perfect answer to a less-than-formal red carpet premiere, and established the Disney Channel star as a style force to be reckoned with, so we're going to have to give the win to Gomez.
